Yasmin Levy

I’m very much in love with this woman’s voice. I listen to her music when I can and find her sound inspires me when I’m writing for my partner.

She’s predominately a Ladino singer, Ladino being a Romance language derived from old Spanish (Judaeo-Spanish).

Have a listen and see what you think. She’s not everyone’s cup of tea, but I find her sound beautiful, evocative and passionate.

This next song she sung, was live on Dutch TV. The opening sound of the duduk always sends shivers down my spine and is one of the instruments I intend to learn to play. Beautiful.

I stumbled upon her when writing a piece about the madness of love and wanted an accompanying piece of music.

The piece below is entitled Locura (Madness), the beginning is lovely, but it does tend to get a little mad at the end and could do with finishing about a minute earlier, but still worth a listen.
